steele. michael, romney's line to his donors in new york city went something like this. it's going to be a long road, but we're winning the most delegates and we're going to be the nominee. kind of like what he said in an interview yesterday. >> right. >> by the way, last night i got more delegates than anybody else. so this is a process of becoming the nominee. we're pursuing that. some who are very conservative may not yet be in my camp, but they will be when i become the normal anemia and face barack obama. >> is that the right message? >> it is. they want to know, you know, how sure are you about the footing you have ragt now? how are you doing in your delegate count? what's your burn rate so far? how much are you taking in? >> did you take that at all to say to those other people to mean the conservatives who have supported rick santorum or newt gingrich, you're not going to have a choice. you're going to have to come over to me in november. >> keep in mind, he's talking to people who are supporting him, so that's a different conversation than the one you're going to have when
to get to. my tan today, politico former rc chair and writer of the rules, michael steele and miya politic kaw henderson. before i get to michael steele, rule 4a, paragraph c, what is the different points issance i want to talk quickly about both, interesting yesterday, both the santorum campaign and the romney campaign found themselves on the defensive over women's issues. particularly this issue on contraception. here's both karen santorum responding on this issue, but mitt romney having to deal with it as a town hall yesterday. here's a look for more. >> rick is a great guy. he's completely supportive of women. he's surrounded by a lot of very strong women. and i think women have nothing to fear when it comes to contraceptives he will do nothing on that issue. >> let me tell you something. let me -- if you're looking-if you're looking for free stuff, if you're looking for free stuff you don't have to pay for, vote for the other guy. that's what he's all about. that's not what i'm about. you have the choice in this country of doing something which politicians have been promoting
, the struggle for survival inside the obama white house." and michael steele, msnbc analyst and former rnc chairman. thank you both for being here tonight. >> good to see you, rev. >> michael, you handing out life preservers or is there still time to right this ship? >> abandon ship. no, look, i think both these gentlemen have touched an appropriate nerve that is getting everyone's attention focused on whether or not we are seriously going to contest for not just the nomination but for the white house this fall. and i think the battles that we have seen so far, the bickering, the back and forth, the ugly ads, all of this is fodder that's been fed to the democrats and that will get replayed against the eventual nominee this fall. so, yeah. i think george will is saying, look. everybody needs to start taking a look at this thing and seeing that at some point, we may have to re-evaluate what the real priority is going to be for november. and so we have time to do that. in other words, let's get it right now, but if we continue down this path, and i agree 100% with him, we might as well focus
to romney after the results. florida, michael steele continues to contend that those rules are not fair, that they shouldn't have been winner take all. look, if he doesn't get to 1144, the way old credential committees and lawrence, i know i'm beginnigi giving you flashb it's going to be chaos. >> in a universe where there's the potential for this kind of shenanigans in dels, who benefits from that, the team with the best lawyers, the best back room operators? certainly the team that has both of those is going to be benefited over the other, but you know, it also is going to come down to who has the emotional connection if it came down to with the delegates at the detention. these candidates will have to get up and give a speech, the speech of their lives. all of the preplanned showbiz aspects of the convention where you're trying to drive a message, trying to connect with the american people will be totally out the window. it will be total chaos. it's anyone's guess what will happen. there's absolutely no modern precedent for it. >> chuck todd, steve schmidt and rachel maddow. thank yo
. >> michael steele, a lover of women. thank you for joining us. >>> actor george clooney was released about an hour ago after being arrested outside of sudan embassy. he was arrested this morning protesting an escalating emergence on sudan. he said he could only hope his brief arrest draws attention to this situation. >> you never know if you're accomplishing anything. we're trying to bring attention to a moment in time that's important. we hope that as the people understand there really is a ticking clock on this. we need to get moving. >> next, the president in chicago after a very busy week indeed. stay with us. >> it's now been 200 years since the british came here to the white house under somewhat different circumstances. they made quite an impression. they really lit up the place. >> i am a little embarrassed as i stand here to think that 200 years ago my ancestors tried to burn this place down. ♪ we always hear about jobs leaving america. here's a chance to create jobs in america. oil sands projects, like kearl, and the keystone pipeline will provide secure and reliable energy to t
and the statue of lenin and stalin? >> michael steele is only one man. he fought the good fight, but there's only so much he can do. >> holy cow. you know, we usually have the democratic hour of power here. but seriously, last week was a week with carl marks. even barnacle went way off the cliff. >> he was wearing a nike pullover track suit on friday, so he completely mailed it in by thursday afternoon. >> oh, i hear you guys were so unkind to mike barnicle, i even felt sorry for him. >>> coming up, we're going to be talking to presidential candidate rick santorum. >>> also, congressman elijah cummings. >>> and later, we'll have willem dafoe stopping by. very exciting. >>> also, mika jets in from the south of france. but first, here's bill cairns with a check on the forecast. bill, i just -- i don't know what to say about this weather except you've got to love global warming. i hope it sticks around for a couple of months. >> yeah, i know. don't go buying any snow blowers anytime soon. it's just incredible. international falls, minnesota, one of the coldest places there is, was 80 degrees this we
a brokered convention. when you hear that, what do you think? that's michael steel who used to be the chairman obviously. >> i like michael steel. >> oh, no. whenever someone starts, i like -- i'm going to write that down as one of my phrases, i like. >> bless his heart, i hope you don't buzz me on this. >> you know what that means, chip. >> we know what's coming. this is not good for the party, to go through a brokered convention. i don't think that's what chairman steel's goal was. i think it was make the process a little longer. the last 20 years the nomination's been over in one or two or three states. now we have this very long process but usually we would be good. then we added super pacs to it so no longer do you win states to get momentum to stay in the race. now you just get one or two contributors to write really big checks and you can stay in the whole way and ultimately that may not be good for our nominee. now mitt romney is using it if he's the nominee to his advantage. senator santorum has used this time to his advantage to build a great organization that a lo
convention. michael steele said that himself. we are going to sit back and watch the drama. >> you make it a fight to sunday morning. thank you both. >> there are new fears that the rising price of gas could pose a serious threat to the recovery of the u.s. economy. the average national gas price is energy $4 a gallon and some economists say it could hit $5 and cause an immediate downturn. brenda buttner is here. >> hi. >> it impacts what you pay to transport the goods and that raises the price of the goods. so how severe is the impact? >> we have been luck thetime, as opposed to between the 08, there are a couple of thairngs different. number 1, some energy sources have been going down. we have seen natural gas falling. so consumers haven't been hit as hard by the rising price of gas. and they have been saving more as unemployment has been going down a bit. but we are right at a tipping point. >> you hit a key point. that's hiring from small businesses. some surveys are showing that small businesses are getting hit and they are about to start rising prices prices and they're about -- t
. >> michael steel, a happy, happy man. i think he's the only one who is happy. no, haley barbour was saying this is not the worst thing in the world to have a contesting convention. he said, i don't think anyone in require thought rind -- right mind has thought this is good. >> maybe if he had never run before. but he's been out there, you don't need to learn fen who he is and allow for the mistakes. >> i think mitt romney is not the greatest can dat in the world. he's got skills as a businessman and other skills but i think being a political candidate is not necessarily he highest among them. some people get better after time, i don't think he does. >> it's like a programming note behind the scenes, there are certain operatives, certain officials when they say something, you really do have to listen. i put haley barbour in that category, put karl rove in that category, ed gillespie, who ran the reform n.c. an ran the bush white house for a while. they know so many people and are in constant contact with people across the country, it's tons of expertise, a mirror of what happened throughout
've established a few things. one is this. barber shops matter. remember back in february when michael steele and anita hill shared with us the agreement that barber shops have been and continue to be historically and contemporarily important places for communities to gather, discuss political issues, argue about news and information. if you're going to be joining us regularly, you get to go to the barbershop a lot. this week, we headed to the barbershop for one reason. to watch basketball. that's right. nerdland is in the throes of march madness and we decided that this was madness best experienced in a couple of barber shops in the heart of new york's brooklyn and harlem. >> i'm arnold. i've bp a barber since '89. we have the college court liu. a lot of them come to me for haircuts. >> we come here all the time. games with the fellas. we all like different players. differences of opinion. >> i put dell over nuchlt lv. >> they're more nba fan. my man, we big college basketball fans. so we haven't had a rowdy atmosphere yet. had this gets down to the final four, it probably get a little more
in the middle of march when mccain won texas and ohio. >> when michael steel said he did that intentionally, that he thought sort of leading up to a brokered convention made it high drama, i'm sort of quoting him. >> look, he was wanting to build excitement. look at what happens. >> it's not everywhere but in some cases. also a look at the conservative. romney's positions on the issues. two conservatives say 10%. 50% say he's not conservative enough. that's certainly sticking. >> we always look for historical pair parallels. in 1980 ronald regan was running against george h.w. bush. people were asking former president gerald ford to consider stepping back in the race. the point is not this that mitt romney or rick santorum or ronald regan. ronald regan wasn't ronald regan at this point. we continue to look at these guys struggling to win over voters. put that in context. it doesn't mean each one of these guys is absolutely awful and will lose to obama. >> history is always interesting. historically my knee jerk reaction is the disaffected will fall in line once there is a candidate. >> and
the confederates are doing. steel no banks. where is banks? banks has decided not to come up with his men marching across south louisiana. he is dealing, as he inaugurates the new union governor, michael honda, who had been a union senator from louisiana. and he is just fastidious with all of this. these wonderful goings on trying to show that louisiana is going to be a fine union state. at the same time, 20,000 of his men are slogging across south louisiana. they go by rail from algiers across from new orleans, to what is today oregon city, by rail. and then they have to march through those south louisiana swamps, buckshot, black dirt gumbo. my grandmother used to call it grow taller but because it sticks to your shoes and you grow taller. they march all the way across to the little bitty town of washington. today it is st. landry parish. and then from there, they head north east to alexandria. it takes them a week to do it. it's miserable. it's raining. the roads are bottomless. and then in the muddy pig and banks has given to voters that they will not go into a city if they look bad. so they ha
